Ras Kamboni fighters block port activities in Kismayo

axm-raskamboniWitnesses say fighters loyal to Ras Kamboni militia have stopped on Thursday the port activities in the southern town of Kismayo, 500 Km south of Mogadishu.

The move comes as an international delegation is set to arrive on Thursday (6th December, 2012) in the city, sources indicated.

Local residents said Fighters from Ras Kamboni were visible patrolling all the main streets in Kismayo, blocking charcoal exports at the port.

Kismayo fell to the allied forces from Somali and Kenya early in November this year after Al shabab militants abandoned the city without a fight or much resistance
